Happy Friday everyone! I was able to work through my breaks at work and get off early, not a bad day! Now if only the match matching in Clash Royale would quit being complete garbage that would be greeeaaattt…
One thing that cheers me up, nearly instantly, is listening to The Ego Trippers!
The Ego Trippers are a 3 piece “garage rock” band from Louisville Kentucky! Made up of Zac Anderson (guitar/vocals), Izak Cirillo (Bass/vocals), and Donnie Haines (drums)! They formed early on during high school and they are still rocking out even with a hectic college schedule! you can fit them in nearly any sub genre of rock n roll but I’d like to think they are the love child of Cage The Elephant and Weezer!
I saw them the first time at Magbar and I’m not going to lie I was like, “Ok this is just some lame filler band that will play 3-4 songs and dip”. However I was quite impressed! Not only is their music catchy but they are very entertaining to watch, they definitely still have their youthful spirits in peak condition!
The second time I saw them was at Zanzabar and it was eeevveeenn better than the first time I saw them! When you have the whole crowd roaring with cheers and whistles you know your doing it right!
Once again major shout out to Daniel Cartledge for not only reaching out to them to see if they wanted to be on the Whatcha Recording Willis Podcast but also thank you for being a great host and co host for the interview! It’s safe to say we all ate our weight in pizza, no regrets!
NEXT THURSDAY AT ZANZABAR!!! The Ego Trippers and Legs Akimbo are playing with The Empty Room for their album release show, which your’s truly did the full production! You should totally come out and see what all the hype is about 😉

In this interview you will hear the songs “All Night Long” and “Holidays (I Can’t Take It)” off their self titled album which you can purchase HERE! We discussed the origins of The Ego Trippers, how the recording process went down, we went on a tangent about some goofy music based movies, how the songs come about, some of their musical influences and much much more!
